Here I go again! Starting another new year in the same old leaky boat as the previous uncountable New Year's. I have approximately 60 pounds to shed...not as many as some people but certainly enough to make me uncomfortable and unhealthy. I was doing well this past summer and was down almost 20 pounds but I find that I am easily distracted by life's stresses. My good habits,so precarious and fragile,get bull-dozed by very deeply ingrained old,destructive habits of emotional survival. I medicate myself with large amounts unhealthy food. And I've done this for a large part of my life. It's so easy to get lazy and gain the weight right back. Trying to break the repetitive cycle is the hardest project I have ever undertaken. I have to focus on one day at a time from now on,like an alcoholic.
Here goes something.....taking my best shot at it. :)
I cannot believe how well I am doing...June 2011...well...yes I can.I've worked hard but I'm worth working hard for.
It is now two years later. I will NOT be wasting any more time on this. I WILL prevail.March 2013.
